Digging Deeper in the Archives

Hello all!
 I'm feeling better each day. The farther I get from my chemo day, the better I feel. I spoke with the surgeon yesterday. I'm having my surgery October 20th. That means I have three weeks to heal and get stronger. I also have three weeks to enjoy not seeing a doctor! I'm still reading through my blog. You'll notice these entries are from last Autumn. Before you know it, I'll be up to the minute. It's been quite an experience. I've been reminded again and again, in my own voice, how faithful God has been to me and my family. Enjoy these, some of my favorites.

You are Loved. Don't Give Up!


 There you have it! My list of favorites I read this week. I hope you enjoy them. 


How to Read a Blog from the Very First Post

P.S. If you'd like to join me in reading (or skimming) my blog from the beginning, here's my very first post: A Cozy Christ Centered Christmas.

After reading the post, just click on Newer Post. Read and repeat. After you've read as many posts as you'd like, simply bookmark the next page, and pick up from there next time you'd like to read. I put mine in the bookmarks at the top of my page. 

I've read Mrs. White's blog, The Legacy of Home  and Aunt Ruthie's blog, Sugar Pie Farmhouse from the beginning. Now I'm reading Roxy Jones' blog, Living from Glory to Gloryas well as my own.

To find the first post of a blog, go to the first month of the first year listed, then find the first post. 


  1. I am so happy you are feeling better each day. Blessings from above. Prayer that the surgery leaves healthier and that you heal completely and quickly.
    God bless.

  2. I was on a three week cycle with my chemo... and week three was always amazing..I could do so much.
    I had the surgery for ovarian cancer before my chemo started, I hope and pray everything goes ok for you. The Lord is with you

  3. Laura, so happy to hear you are feeling better. Praying that you get to have a wonderful 3 weeks before the surgery and praying that you will do well with surgery and healed from that real soon.. May God heal your body and may you get to return to your life real soon..Hugs my friend.
    I am loving the reading your blog from then.. SO fun and learning more about you and family.. fun/fun. thank you

  4. I have read some blogs from start to current and plan to do yours too. Finding time right now is hard, but hoping this winter will be slower and give me time to do so. I'm going now to read the posts you have highlighted. Thanks for always providing good cheer and a positive attitude. It's refreshing.

  5. Happy that you are feeling better. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for a complete recovery. My sisters and I start reading Christmas books in September . When the holidays get close ,everything gets so hectic and reading time gets limited.

  6. I am thankful you are feeling better.
    Hope the next several weeks are just glorious for you!
    Still praying every day for you!
    I think I will not go back and your your blog right now.
    But I think this winter it would be wonderful to do that.
    When I can snuggle down in a blanket, and keep my feet warm too!
    For awhile there a few years ago, I went back and read both of Faye Henry's blogs..
    I enjoyed that immensely.
    I think I should read hers again too.
    The two you, Faye, and you, have my favorite blogs of all!
    Many blessings dear friend!
    No need to reply, hugs!

  7. Laura so glad your feeling better! Chemo is some rough stuff but your are a tough person. I'm praying for you1

  8. I am so thankful that you are feeling stronger each day. I will continue to pray for health and that surgery goes well.

  9. For growing strength for you, I am so very happy. I will keep praying and pray extra while you are in surgery the 20th.

  10. Praying for you Laura as you prepare for surgery. I am so glad that you are already feeling better and stronger. Be blessed my friend!

  11. You turned me onto Melody Carlson a little while ago, girl I have ordered everyone of her Christmas ones I can find. The Christmas Blessing and the Christmas Pony are the only ones I haven't gotten yet. But I will.
    Please know I'm praying for you, the surgeons and your family.
    Love in Christ
